Rio Ferdinand tells MPs his kids needed monkey emoji explained
A joint Committee of MPs and Peers is examining the government’s Online Safety Bill.
Former England captain Rio Ferdinand is on the panel that will tell the committee about their experience of online hate.
Ferdinand was asked about how it used to feature in the 70s and 80s and is still affecting players today?
The ex-Manchester United player has called on social media companies to protect people from hate and abuse. He told MPs abuse online is “normalising” racist behaviour with “no repercussions”.
The government’s proposed new laws would set up new rules to tackle harmful online content. Is it time to have this done? It has been going on for some time. No longer should anyone have to accept such behaviour. Will this bill help? Is it time to take action?
Do you agree with his views? Could online media do more?
